Lock out the spouse!

From Brenda Wolfe

Sir, - I enjoy your Back Page Interview, but there ought to be a ban on the unimaginative choice of an interviewee's spouse as the person he or she would like to be locked in a church with. Surely it cannot be that hard to find time to communicate with one's spouse in the normal course of life. It is not a "real" question: it is a device, rather like Desert Island Discs, to add to our understanding of the interviewee's concerns and character.
